I've never heard this song before but it's a pretty cool video.

Eh, do you remember when MTV first came out? My family didn't have cable back then, so I was always excited to watch some MTV at a friend's house. Those were the days...
MTV evolved into nothing about music!!! My tv listing has half dozen MTVs and I occasionally turn on MTV classic.. but now they play Jersey Shore instead of music and make TV shows!!!

Yep, I quit watching MTV ages ago, but when it first all got started some bands/musicians took great care to make visually appealing videos because they didn't have much musical talent to claim their spot on the radio airwaves.

Way too overplayed, but this video turned out to be pretty prophetic.

I was a big Bowie fan once (still am to an extent), but even at the most ardent stage of my fandom I found it impossible (despite many efforts) to convince myself that Tin Machine were any good. The closest I got at best was maybe thinking a couple of songs were inoffensive. Amalapura(?) and Goodbye Mr Ed are the two that spring to mind.

Read years ago that Bowie told close musical collaborators that he wished for some form of anonymity so he could be a musician instead of a rock star and he noted that when you are famous people enjoy talking between songs and story setups before playing a song. Thought that he got involved in Tin Machine to not play Ziggy Stardust, Major Tom, Let's Dance or China Girl in that nights set, just able to play some straight forward rock and roll without having to play from deep decades of catalog that everyone knows and sings along with as much as they listen to it..Even now using headphones I will hear a detail in a benchmark, like a Rolling Stones or Eagles song that I have heard a million times but I wasn't listening to it.. have rediscovered lots of music after playing it for years and actually really listening to it.. I think lots of Bowie at some point was a background soundtrack..I find offensive or semi offensive, barely passable songs on lots of albums that are considered classics. As a really young man I would feel ripped off in I got an album and only 2,3 of the songs were good out of12-14 which was the format.. Tin Machine falls in that. Half good.. Half not so much..
